Centurion Aircraft Engines has expanded its service network for the Centurion diesel aircraft engine.
The service network was strengthened by appointing new FBOs, particularly in North America, while Scheiling Aircraft Service has been appointed the 40th service center in Germany.
“We reached additional milestones in our service, with the main focus being on the North American market. Our warehouse in Dallas, Texas, has been further stocked up during the last weeks with the arrival of new gearboxes and clutches, as well as gearbox oil, ensuring its availability in the U.S. We also authorized three more FBOs as service centers. In North America we now have 75 service centers, out of a total of 320 FBOs in our worldwide networ,k including our newest member Scheiling Aircraft Service,” said Jasper Wolffson, CEO. “In the year 2010 160 seminar participants have been trained on how to maintain Centurion engines in our courses in Dallas and Lichtenstein (Germany), and the remainder of 2011 training seminars, which will be held in Lichtenstein in February and May, as well as in Dallas in March, are already well booked.”
Key milestones have already been achieved in the service campaign, such as the extension of service life to 1,500 hours and the elimination of the time-consuming and costly factory inspection at the 1,200-hours maintenance interval, he added. All authorized Centurion Service Centers can perform the 1,200-hours inspection of the Centurion 2.0. Currently more than 2,600 Centurion engines are being operated in a range of different aviation settings, having logged over 2.6 million flight hours.
